Which plugs do you recommend for the MM Kangaroo and 35+21 in typical northern european conditions (From 60F to 85F; 55% humidity).
The OEM Kangaroo comes with a Nova 6 plug. I assume that you recommend a cooler one after your modifications, right?

Thanks a lot and best regards, Stefan
Hi. Yes, we have tried them. They are really good. Very durable compared to past Novarossi plugs.

After break in I do suggest running the C8TGH plugs in most on road .21 engines, in most conditions. They work great!

The MM Flash, and MMC10 are very comparable to each other. The Flash has a little more low end grunt, and the C10 has slightly more top end power.

You can use the following connecting rods in both engines.

RB 01700-171
Novarossi 07601

Default Conrod wrist pin

Hi Uriah,

does it make any difference in which direction the wrist-pin is put in?
Normally Nova ships all pins with the open hole towards the front of the engine. The Kangaroo which I just received from you has the hole facing towards the rear (exhaust side)...

Thanks for your feedback!

Stefan

I do always face the opening to the intake port so it does get some fresh fuel for an extra cooling from inside the pin and so the bushing of the rod.

Hi. Novarossi sends engines with the opening to the front most of the time. They send the opening to the rear about 25% of the time. I have not found any performance, or reliability difference whether it faces front, or back.

What is your opinion on the 16% Powermaster Fuel as compared to the others on the market?

It is the best fuel I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot! It is very fast, and offers awesome protection from wear. I use Powermaster 16% in my .12 engines, and Powermaster 25% in my .21 engines. I must say that everyone who has tried it loves it. I also like the fact that it is factory sealed, with no chance of any air getting in. There are many years of experience, and some special chemicals involved in making this fuel, and it shows. It's FIRE!

#8 plug? with stock head shims?
won't the lowend or idle be a little too tricky to tune?

I am using stock head clearance with the c8tgh plug. It works fine for my team, and I. Still easy to tune, and very durable with the larger wire diameter.

Let me know if you have any tuning issues when you try them, I can help you through it.

It should make a bit more top end but a bit less low end.
